  1. I’ll pick some up and give it a good going over. Yes i am very planning to give the loft some further upgrades. Covering the roof with mdf might even clad the end walls and going to paint the long beams
  2. Still no progress unfortunately. The next exciting thing will be the 56s arriving, anybody got advice on keeping the track clean as the dirty track has led to dirty wheels and poor running which is a bit of a downer david
  3. I know what you mean about the pins with the Dapol instanters I had 10 pairs to fit to my skytrex PCAs I have no idea who could think they were a good idea david
  4. Plenty of these paint markings on the route as well as lots of embankment lineside vegetation clearance, between Huddersfield and Deighton there was some more pilot holes being drilled looking forward to some more heavy duty progress I believe there a big blockade due January time between York and Huddersfield as a lot of route learning if currently underway so we can bypass Leeds entirely (don’t know the actual plan for services so please don’t ask) and route learning refreshing on the Calder valley for most depots is picking up pace.
  5. Coming along nicely keep it up david
  6. Look forward to seeing the layout in the flesh might have to move back in with my mum in lupset during December david
  7. Alway liked the Hornby 60s great model just a shame they never updated the PCB to include independent lighting and more planned to join the fleet or just these 2? david
  8. I wish, If I had I’d have a lot more stock than this I’m glad you approve, I’ve not done much with the layout since so here’s another picture to tide you over david
  9. Good to see an update and that you’ll be all ready for winter, and Glad to see you’ve managed to get the 08 sorted David
  10. Well that’s both loops laid and running a few running issues on the inner loop with buffer lock but think I’ve solved it but more tests need to be done to be sure. typical not quite enough reach Start of one set of storage sidings And the start of testing david
  11. Currently got 10 including the ‘cripple’ might do 15. I’m using an NCE powercab with the 5amp smart booster. Thanks probably going to have at least 1 bridge to break up the loop.
  12. Well since i completed the first loop I’ve had some fun testing and so far I’ve had pretty much no issues apart from my skytrex PCAs I think I’ve isolated it to one wagon so that’s been red carded till I can figure out what the issue is. david
  13. Yes running decent rakes is more my thing than perfectly manicured senics as long as it doesn’t look garbage and I can get some half decent pictures I’m happy
  14. I have made some progress one circuit is completed an electrically tested but I’m currently waiting for some more cork to get the second one done. I’ll be honest I’ve not put an immense amount of thought into it beyond the two circuits and some sidings idea probably basic scenics some ballast and grass small line side building and some signals. Yes I did at one time I’ve had maybe 3 layouts on here at some point or another. Great video cheers for sharing You’ll be more than welcome david
  15. Yes definitely the advantage of an ex 1940s council house Thanks Andy Don’t panic before any rolling stock goes near that side of the layout I will be building a substantial hatch cover
